SIGCSE SIGCAS Pre-symposium workshop
March 11, 2020 — Portland,OR USA
Computing for Social Good in Education (CSG-Ed) provides an opportunity for learning technical and professional skills while reinforcing computing’s social relevance. This FREE SIGCAS-sponsored pre-symposium event will allow participants to learn how to incorporate CSG-Ed into their classroom in two ways.
The morning will focus on Humanitarian Free and Open Source Software (HFOSS), particularly on development of “HFOSS kits”. An HFOSS kit provides an isolated environment built with artifacts from an active HFOSS project that can be used to learn and practice software skills. For example, a kit containing a code base, issue tracker, and revision control history could support learning related to version control. HFOSS kits provide the complexity and scale of the real project while allowing students to explore a socially beneficial application. Short presentations will provide the foundation for a breakout session to explore ideas for development of HFOSS kits.
The afternoon will focus on a practical approach for conveying and integrating computing’s social relevance into existing computing curricula, regardless of the practitioner’s past experience with CSG-Ed and the resources the practitioner has available.
